May all yer hang-overs be tolerable.

for Pete's sake, if you drink - take a cab! Stay off your broom!!

*raises a toast to the New Year*

May 2009 be the morning of prosperity that shines on the evening of 2008’s adversity.

New Year's Eve

Play a thin tune
on a paper horn
Old is dying
New is born....

Scatter confetti
over the floor
Sweep an old year
Out the door....

Blow up a wish
in a bright balloon
Whisper dreams
To a midnight moon....

Play a loud tune
on a paper horn
Old is dying
New is born....

Your result for The hey good lookin' whatcha got cookin' test...

Sous Chef 75%

Superb result! You must really know your veggies. Either you are already a chef, or perhaps you just love to cook. You seemed to do well with several of the more obscure vegetables. Most of the vegetables used in this test came straight from the garden. They were so much fresher than those that are shipped across the country.
